	I'd have to disagree, especially when you talk about: 1There are fixes out there

0	1we're not plugged into the Symbolics support system.0  I think what you are

    Come off it. 


Well, I guess I pissed you off :-)).  It wasn't my intention, I guess using
capital letters was a little harsh.  It just was a point that I thought was
relevant.  I guess I made the point too strongly (you know how
hard it is to get the right tone in e-mail messages). Anyway, I do think passing out
information generated by Symbolics customer support over SLUG is something (at
least to me anyway) similar to sending out their source code over SLUG.

Nuff said.
